Tigerville, SC (Aug. 21, 2023) Featuring messages from Pastor Marcus Hayes, North Greenville University’s (NGU) Ignite week is underway on the university’s Tigerville campus. 

Hayes is the lead pastor at Crossroads Baptist Church in The Woodlands, Texas. He is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

“Each year, NGU seeks to start the semester with an intentional invitation to the student body to live lives grounded in a proper understanding of who God is and who he is calling them to be,” said Dr. Jared Thomas, NGU’s vice president for Campus Ministries and Student Engagement. “This year, Pastor Hayes is helping achieve this by focusing on the role that worship should play in our daily lives.”

Hayes will be speaking in Turner Chapel on Monday at 7 p.m., Tuesday at 7 p.m., and Wednesday at 10 a.m.

“I’m honored to be the speaker at North Greenville University’s Ignite week,” he said. “Something I’ve discovered is that it’s easy to drift in our walk with the Lord, and to have more of a mechanical, rather than a covenant relationship with Him.”

“Have I drifted? How do I get God’s best for my life both now and in the future? Could it start at Ignite week? I’m looking forward to God showing up at this event and teaching us what it looks like to live a life of worship,” Hayes said.

For those unable to attend Ignite week, services can be streamed here.
